Ron Paul Wants To End Anti-Cuban Sanctions

Posted by Lew Rockwell at February 20, 2008 03:30 PM

Ron Paul has always advocated free trade with Cuba: no barriers, no subsidies, and complete freedom for Americans to buy Cuban goods, and American farmers and businessmen to export to Cuba. Ron also knows that free trade means exporting capitalism to Cuba, just what that poor country needs. All the other candidates are for tightening the screws on Cubans (and would-be American traders and visitors). Ron Paul wants to export freedom and private property rights. And good for him for using the occasion of Castro's resignation to call for an end to immoral and protectionist anti-civilian sanctions.

Another Lie About Ron
Posted by Anthony Gregory at February 20, 2008 03:46 PM

Some of his detractors say he's a protectionist, but of course he's not. In the video Lew posts, Ron Paul again reiterates his free trade principles concerning the evil embargo on Cuba and US sanctions as weapons of war. It is true that Ron is opposed to bureaucratic managed trade agreements and international agencies like the WTO, but he is a champion of unilaterally lowering tariffs, like all classical liberals, as well as an opponent of the most vicious trade restrictions of all. He sees trade as a human right and the path to peace and prosperity. And he points out the hypocrisy of the "free trade" Republicans who helped cut trade off from the Iraqi people, leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths.

Watch Ron Paul WIN MTV / MySpace': "Closing Arguments: A Presidential Super Dialogue"(!!!)

Sunday February 3, 2008

Ron Paul did a great job in the MTV/Myspace forum. Of course, some of his answers may have been too scholarly for the audience, which appeared to be populated mostly by the kind of people you'd expect to get their ideas from MTV. Many of them sat there looking bored because they weren't getting the lame-brained platitudes and promises of free stuff an Obama offers. The girl who wants taxpayers to subsidize her undoubtedly prodigious sex life seemed especially disappointed.

But for that even-smaller-than-usual Remnant in MTV's audience, Ron Paul provided a wealth of ideas that they can Google later about sound money, free markets, and a non-interventionist foreign policy. His summary at the end about not wanting to run people's lives probably struck a cord in a great many young people already sick of power-hungry politicians -- you could see the smiles spread across the audience members' faces as he spoke. He needs to play that note for all it's worth.

Legendary skater, punk, & shoe-designer, Duane Peters' band - The U.S. Bombs - goes on tour for Ron Paul


U.S. Bombs Out to Boost Paul, Lead Revolution

By David Steinberg
Journal Staff Writer

Talk to Duane Peters and you get the feeling that the name of his punk rock band may also be a statement on how it feels about the United States of America. In other words, Peters said, the country needs a major political face-lift. And the man to get the job done, he declared, is Ron Paul, the Texas congressman who's a candidate for the Republican nomination for president. "We're not out touring to promote our last record. It's a year old. We're promoting Ron Paul," Peters said in a phone interview from Los Angeles.
